Benefits for Teachers

Reading Rewards helps give your class’ reading scores a boost by helping you:

  • monitor students’ reading activities
  • give them feedback
  • assess reading comprehension
  • recognize their progress
  • get parents involved in the process
Teachers know it all too well: There’s never enough time in  a day.

By moving your paper reading logs online, Reading Rewards saves you from having to plough through piles of paper.

And our Premium functionality was designed to make the most out of your time: From creating your students’ accounts in a few simple clicks and eliminating the need for onerous paper reading logs, to letting you design and grade quizzes in a flash.

One of the key objectives of Reading Rewards is to motivate children to read.  Kids have fun choosing an avatar, and advancing levels as they read. They can also earn badges and special rewards you define for them.

Teachers with a Premium account can rev up their students’ appetite for reading with customized badges to recognize efforts and achievements, and by leaving personalized comments on students’ reading logs and book reviews.

Reading Rewards has a built-in blog feature where your class can exchange thoughts on the books they are reading. You can also exchange private messages with indivual students.

In addition, the new Reading Rewards’ Premium account for teachers introduces new features to help you communicate more effectively with both students and their parents.

For example, you can send out friendly messages of encouragement to students who are behind on their assigned reading lists, comment on individual reading logs or book reviews, and send  progress reports to parents.

How it Works

As a teacher, you set up your class as a group, and ask your students to join. Once your students are part of your shared group, you can assign reading, track their reading activities, read their book reviews, and more.

You can set individual reading targets (and rewards, if desired) for your students, as well as targets and rewards for your class as a whole.

It’s fun and satisfying for the class to watch the numbers grow, and using our built-in reward models there is very little for you to set up!

Because Reading Rewards is fully web based, your students can access it from home themselves. And parent dashboards mean that parents are kept up-to-date and involved every step of the way.
